Couple need advice on Working and Travelling ATW!

Travel Forums Round the World Travel Couple need advice on Working and Travelling ATW!

Hi Everyone,

We are obviously feeling no different to anyone else who is taking the 'plunge' to travel, as my fiance and I have also fallen into the 'rut' here in blighty.

We have been thinking about emmigration but it seems that a simpler option would be to go travelling and work as we go. I'm 26 and my fiance is 35 so we're thinking if we don't get out and see the world now then we will end up just staying put on the farm that he has worked on for the last 18 years!!!!

We are very open minded about where to go but would definately like Canada and USA to be in there.
We are hoping to work and travel as we go and just see where the journey takes us.

We were also wondering if we would be better off going with a company that helps to find you work as you travel as opposed to finding it ourselves. Could anyone recommend such a company?

I was wondering about the 'work4travel Frontier Club'? Has anybody used them before?

Any General advice and thoughts would be gratefully received.

Many Thanks

Sarah :)

I don't know about all countries for working in, but unless you plan on working illegally, your fiance might have some trouble because the countries I do know about working holiday visas for expect the worker to be under 31. Maybe some countries might differ from this condition.

Get out there and travel, you never know what life has got in store for you so you should at least make the most of it while you are young enough to enjoy things to the fullest.

Yeah, I've been having a look at visas and discovered that working holiday visas are more often than not 18-30/35, so obviously that puts my fiance out of that option :(
What would be the alternative option for us, visa wise, in order to work?
We have wondered about just trying to emmigrate as my fiance has 18 years of experience in all aspects of arable farming but not sure whether this is enough and in which countries!!?

Hi, you can work in Australia if you get a year working visa which I think costs 110 pounds. Another option, if either of you have a degree is to work abroad teaching English. I'm in Korea at the moment teaching middle school kids, along with my girlfriend and it's a good opportunity to live in another country and also save money for a round the world trip. Hope this helps.
